they want answers to this, and if they don't get them the president's nominee for cia and defense could be held up. >> we conduct those strikes because they are necessary to mitigate ongoing actual threats, prevent attacks and save american lives. these strikes are legal, ethical and wise. the u.s. government takes great care in deciding to pursue an al qaeda terrorist, to insure precision and prevent loss of american lives. gregg: peter doocy joins us in washington. >> the first thing an american citizen has to do to be targeted is associate themselves with al qaeda operations. when they do that the juts is department says that out weighs their right to due process. >> we say that we only take these kinds of actions when there is an imminent threat when capture is not feasible and when we are confident we are doing so in a way that's consistent with federal and international law. >> reporter: a secret justice department memo makes sure there does not have to be a known plot, just an imminent threat to target a citizen aligned with al qaeda. the first to be targeted was anwar al-awlaki.

in washington where we are awaiting the president to speak at a farewell tribute to defense secretary leon panetta in washington. it's a ceremony marked by a 19-gun salute, an inspection of troops, and all accompanied by the united states pershing zone army band. general martin dempsey spoke first and he will soon be followed by the president. all to honor the man whom on thursday senator barbara mackowski said was the one person as cia director who never jerked her around. this comes a day after john brennan, the man who hopes to be the next cia director, walked into a volatile confirmation hearing room full of protests and pointed questions over torture, ren dation, adition, a targeted killings in the war on proper. >> i think there's a misimpression on the part of some american people who believe we take strikes to punish terrorists for past transgressions. nothing could be further from the truth. we only take such actions as a last resort to save lives when there's no other alternative to taking an action that's going to mitigate that threat. >> mr. brennan took pointed questions from
on chuck hagel's nomination to be the next secretary of defense has been abruptly postponed. the senate arms services committee says it needs more information about hagel's paid speeches and business dealings. a number of republicans have raised concerns about whether the former senator has accepted payments for consulting work from "foreign sources." hagel insists he's already disclosed all the required information and despite the delay his supporters say they're still confident that he will be confirmed. >>> the man hagel has been tapped to replace is offering a new warning about the threats facing this country in what could be one of the final speeches as defense secretary. leon panetta telling an audience at georgetown university that the u.s. is at risk of a cyber pearl harbor. >> we are literally the target of thousands of cyber attacks every day. every day. thousands of cyber attacks that are striking at the private sector, striking silicon valley and other institutions within our society, striking government. strike at the defense department and our intelligence agencies. and cy

, this defensive player. of course, it wouldn't be national signing day with a little intrigue. it's gotten so weird and out of hand. all the kids have a press conference. they announce it on espn. alex collins had committed to arkansas but he could not make it official at his press conference. >> did you hear this, mika? >> because they couldn't find the letter of intent that he has to sign. where was it? his mother had taken and hidden it because she didn't want him to move so far from home to play for arkansas. >> great story. >> and said she wants him to stay close to home in florida and play for miami. the school couldn't talk about him because they hadn't signed him technically. his mom had hidden the letter because she didn't want him to leave home. >> i heard she came to school where he was going to have the press conference, grabbed the letter and ran home with it. >> you think he's going to hear about that for the rest of his life? mama took your letter. vanderbilt in the 19th best class. impossible. unheard of. james franklin is changing it. it's a whole new game. >> if stanford can

weapon in the hands of a young woman defending her babies in her home becomes a defense weapon. the peace of mind that she has knowing that she has a scary looking gun gives her more courage when she is fighting hardened violent criminals. >> she would clearly have an adequate ability to protect her family without the need tore a 100 round piece. >> how can you say that? how can you say that? you are a large man and you are not a teen aged -- a tall man. you are not a young mother who has a young child with her and i am passionate about this position because you cannot understand. you are not a woman stuck in her house having to defend her children. not able to leave her child. not able to go seek safety. on the phone with 911. and she cannot get the police there fast enough to protect her child. >> sean: so how is the president's unconstitutional gun grab affecting the ability of mothers, women to protect their children? joining me to discuss all of this from the independent women's forum is gail trotter herself. nice to meet you. you tore it up. even the crowd was getting involved and w
and expanded under president obama. brennan's defense of the secrecy surrounding the administration's most questionable program, targeted assassinations using drone aircraft, was as opaque as the program itself. >> what we need to do is optimize transparency on these issues, but at the same time optimize secrecy and the protection of our national security. i don't think that it's one or the other. it's trying to optimize both of them. >> some senators, including ron widen and angus king, pushed brennan to explain the legal at and justification for assassinating american citizens abroad. >> every american has the right to know when their government believes it's allowed to kill them. >> i understand you can't have co-commanders in chief, but having the executive being the prosecutor, the judge, the jury, and the executioner all in one is very contrary to traditions and the laws of this country. >> brennan argued essentially that the ends justify the means. >> the decision that is are made are to take actions so that we prevent a future action so we protect american lives. that is an inheren

to be the secretary of defense? >> to go on al jazeera, a foreign network broadcasting propaganda to nations that are hostile to us and to explicitly agree with the characterization of the united states as the world's bully, i would suggest is not the conduct one would expect of a secretary of defense. >> you continue to fold, i believe, extreme views far to the left of even this administration. >> if you were a visitor from another country and you just listen to hagel's republican interlocaters, you would have had to ask where did this moral monster come from? and the answer is, of course, is mostly in the republican senate caucus. watching lindsay graham make the pained gassy face of displeasure while he listened to hagel, i wonder how you ever stomached sitting next to hagel for all those years or how john mccain could have said this in 2000 about secretary of defense positions. >> there's a lot of people that could do that. one of them i think is senator chuck hagel. >> then there were the democrats on the committee who seemed intent to steer clear of big questions opting instead to prai
marvin lewis has a good idea. as defensive coordinator he helped lead the ravens to a super bowl victory 12 years ago. he joins us. nice to see you, coach. >> how are you doing today? >> very well. i take it you are excited about the game. i'm curious what are you going to be watching for? i know you are not watching the ads like many people. what are you looking for? >> you know, we are looking for a great game. i think you have two teams that both can be explosive on offense. san francisco obviously with their ground aback but their ability to make plays with their receivers. baltimore's explosive offense and then two defenses that are going to be played very sound and very disciplined and very physical. >> greta: i'm going to look for the quarterback for the 49ers seems to run a lot which may be a nightmare for the coach but seems to run with the ball allot and flacco i watch his arm. look at the pass that he made during the playoff game against denver with 31 seconds left. i always sort of watch for the real dramatic but those are the things i like to watch. >> those were very effect
may filibuster president obama's nominee for the defense secretary, the leader said it was entirely possible. >> it is unclear yet. senator hagel didn't do a very good job before the armed services committee, i think the opposition to him has intensified, whether it means he will achieve 60 votes or 51 is not clear. >> meaning they will filibuster, the republicans call themselves conservatives. but that word, i don't think it means what you think it means, overthrowing decades of unprecedented issues, it is certain, noises for filibustering, that is a leap, if they filibuster chuck hagel, they will not succeed. we know it because of math. there are 55 senators in the democracy caucus, they support chuck hagel, you need 60 to override a filibuster, so if you carry the one, the democrats only need one on their side to support a filibuster, there are two on record supporting chuck hagel for defense secretary, and we've seen reports for another six republican senators who have said that even though they may, oppose hagel, they wouldn't support a filibuster, there are two that seem unlik

today. >>> up next, the hold-up over hagel. defense secretary leon panetta has to stay on the job until chuck hagel is confirmed by the senate. are republicans singling hagel out by delaying the vote? >> with the tradition of the senate, u.s. senators do not usually act this way at all. >> we'll get the latest. >>> and but first there's a lot going on today. here's things we thought you should know. karl rove said the american cross roads superpac is planning more ads attacking ashley judd. the democrat may be considering a run against senator republican leader mitch mcconnell. the superpac debuted an ad this week seeking to portray ashley judd as an inexperienced hollywood liberal who's not even a resident of kentucky. >>> a hacker apparently accessed private photos between both former presidents and claims to have a list of family addresses and phone numbers and e-mails. those are the things we just thought you should know.

and representatives do, and i admire that clarity and that honesty. i think he may not be a defense intellectual. he may not have the broad management experience of some of our previous secretaries of defense, but he's not an ideologue. he will give the president sober advice about how, when, and why we should project our military force abroad. >> and as a former enlisted man, he will be able to relate to the tens of thousands of young troops who are being demobilized over the next few years and are coming home with some real problems and with a need for jobs and housing and other things like that. >> from the very start republicans warned they would try to make hagel seem like an anti-semite. look at what one republican aide told "the weekly standard." this was back in december. quote, send us hagel, and we will make sure every american knows he is an anti-semite. we was referring to this quote, and it's gotten outsized attention since hagel was floated as the nominee. it comes from the interview, aaron, that you did back in 2006 for your book "the much too promised land." most people only highligh
, particularly younger ones, who say let's cut the defense budget, let those automatic spending cuts take place, and there are lots of senior republicans who say, not so fast. so that's going to be a problem within the republican party as we look ahead. >> where does karl rove and his new super pac fit into that? >> did you ever think republicans would call him a rhino, republican in name only. here you go. i've always thought of karl rove as a conservative. what's going on is his pac has said, you know what, we are tired of someone associated with his pac said to me, quote, the novelty of losing elections has worn off, and what they've decided to do is to start putting their money in primaries. they want to vet republican primary candidates so that by the time they get to the general election they believe they have qualified vetted candidates who can actually win. conservatives are saying, this is not what you should do. you need to let the process work itself out and american crossroads is saying, don't sacrifice ideological purity here. you can't worship at that. what you really need to do i
. because of what we saw in the final quarter of the year 2012, the economy actually shrank as defense contractors -- or in part because defense contractors said you know he what? the axe is about to fall. get ready for this. we're going to pull back now. remember, we spend more than $900 billion a year on the defense department, on the pentagon, and so these contractors have a lot to say about the overall size of our economy. the president having seen that is going to say look. we have these cuts that we agreed to go into place, but the economy can't handle it right now, so let's kick the can a little bit and do some of these same kinds of cuts, and they call them cuts, but they're not really cuts. sometimes they're reductions to future increases, sometimes they're taking into account things like not fighting in the iraq war any more, and accounting gimmickry to get to the next thing, and then we'll fall off that cliff when we get to it. >> we understand the president is going to highlight some bad things that will happen if this doesn't get resolved, things like kids getting kicked o
